Looking good Mr. Nepas. What kind of fridge is in the RV? Is it a full size one? Sorry never owned or spent much time in an RV.May 6, 2014 at 5:54 am #8128Jan OomsMember
With your extensive experience in anything Charcuterie, can you expand a bit on your cure quantities and curing times PLEASE!!
In 3 weeks time I will have enough “Home Time” to start my long awaited curing and smoking endeavours.
Coppa’s are first Cab of the rank.

Ok i’m a day early.
Doing the 2nd application of the cure remaining from the 1st application.
9 more days in the fridge.
Wrapped tight. After the 9 days i will rinse the coppa good, pat it dry and let it air dry for an hour before going in the drybag.

For this coppa i used the following.
You will need 5 lbs of pork from the opposite end of a pork butt. I know i didnt get 5 lbs put close enough.
5 Tbs non iodized salt
5 T sugar
1 t cure #2
1.5 T black pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
10 juniper berries
1/2 tsp ground mace
I put all the dry into my spice mill and ground fine. Use half the mix for the 1st 9 day application, save the other half for the other 9 days. Apply the mix in ALL areas of the meat, cuts, holes and such. Cut off any flaps of meat or fat and apply the mix where you just cut off.
Write the days on the bag.
Wrap the meat well in a zip lock and remove as much air as you can and fridge for 9 days turning the bag daily. You will see liquid in the bag, dont worry.
After the 1st 9 day remove meat and re apply the rest of the cure mix. Fridge for another 9 days.May 18, 2014 at 3:57 pm #8203
Got the coppa all rinsed, patted dry and doing a 3 hour room temp dry.
Made a semi sweet coating rub.
Smoked paprika, corn syrup solid, black pepper, semi ground fennel, sugar, cayenne.
Tied the coppa and in a DryBag. Now the wait. Hop it should be done by Sept ;D

Nepal, How long did your 5 lb roast end up taking to dry? Nice instructions, I am going to keep them in mind for my next attempt at Coppa.
